Tlokwe Sehume



Tlokwe Sehume is one of South Africa’s most diverse African contemporary and classical musicians. As well as being a visual artist, Tlokwe has mastered the art of songwriting, song composition, guitar, mbira, mvet, flute, percussion and vocals. As a youngster Sehume grew up in Pretoria. His close-knit family was all musically oriented and it was only a matter of time before this rubbed off on the young Tlokwe. At the age of ten he was already taking great interest in his grandfather’s brass band, but the first instrument that really made an impression on him was the bongos. Playing with them lead to Tlokwe developing his style as a percussionist.
